Enhancing On-going Ministry Through Equipping, Encouraging, and Interceding

Meeting Half-Way

A friend in another town, and I, had trouble agreeing on where to meet for lunch.  I was offering to drive to his town, and he was, likewise, offering to drive to mine.  Finally, we agreed on meeting at a well-known restaurant, located half-way between our two towns.  At least we were biblical in our decision.  I have often wondered if we have presented an incorrect picture of the prodigal son returning home.  At least, my image has always been of the Father sitting on the front porch looking down the road in hopes he might see the young prodigal returning home.  Perhaps, when scripture says, “when he was still a great way off, his father saw him” Luke 15:20) it was the father, who, in the fullness of time, had begun traveling down that road toward the wayward son, and they met somewhere on that road.  After all, long before Jesus shared that story, God said, “Return to Me . . . and I will return to you.” (Zechariah 1:3).  If you have ever sensed you were far from God, start moving toward Him.  He might meet you, half-way.
